Frankly I find it a lot harder to read when the formats are not grouped
by "family". This is the drm_fourcc enumeration order, which has some
kind of logic behind it. What is the advantage of alphabetical ordering
here?

Definitely.

This comment is indeed a bit irrelevant at this stage given that the
tiling modifier was not introduced yet. So in practice, this never
happens with this patch. I should probably move it to a subsequent one.

The rationale behind this logic is that we should try to use the backend
first and only use the frontend as a last resort. Some formats are
supported by both and checking that the backend supports a format first
ensures that we don't bring up the frontend without need.
